Category : Temple
Attraction Details :
This ancient temple is linked with two adjacent temples, Wat Phra Yuen Phutthabat Yukhon and Wat Phra Thaen Sila At, commemorating the myth of the Lord Buddha’s visit to the area. Wat Phra Borommathat Thung Yang includes a Lanna-style wihan, or small shrine hall. Behind the wihan is a round bell-shaped, Ceylonese-style stupa believed to contain relics of the Lord Buddha. The large stupa stands on a three-tiered square base. The lower base has a small chedi at each of the four corners. The third tier of the base has a niche on each of the four sides that are assumed to have been restored afterwards.
The temple is about 3 kilometers from the city of Uttaradit via Highway No. 102. Coming from town, Wat Phra Borommathat Thung Yang will be on the left-hand side.
The temple is open daily 6.00 am–5.00 pm.
